#ICYMIT: Toyota launched its iconic Supra sportscar 33 years ago, 5th-gen headed for SA
Toyota officially launched the iconic Supra on February 6 back in 1986, 33 years ago.
The Japanese brand recently revived the much-loved performance car with the launch of the fifth-generation (A90) scheduled to arrive in South Africa later this year.
A Japanese legend
A host of design and engine changes took place over the years, moving from the then 'box-shaped' from the first generation to the much rounder Mk IV, made famous in the movie The Fast and the Furious.
It is considered by many to be the rival of the Nissan Skyline GT-R, producing similar power from later generation 6-cylinder engines.
